We’re calling it Special for good reason. Designed to compete with the top-of-the-line ADV bikes in the segment; the 1250 Special is loaded with premium features.
All-new Revolution® Max 1250 Engine
The next chapter in a century of legendary V-Twins is here. Revolution® Max is a liquid-cooled powertrain with over 145 horsepower; full of ample torque; and a surging powerband tuned to maximize rider control.
The Revolution® Max 1250 is a structural component of the motorcycle chassis; eliminating a traditional frame —which significantly reduces overall weight and keeps handling taut. This is performance you can feel; with the center of gravity low and the chassis super rigid.
Double Overhead Camshafts (DOHC) facilitate higher peak horsepower; and independent Variable Valve Timing (VVT) broadens the overall powerband and improves torque management. All this to say you’ll have as much low-end acceleration off the line and high-RPM horsepower you can twist.
Adaptive Ride Height
Adaptive Ride Height makes its debut on the Pan America 1250 Special. This factory-installed option unlocks confidence you can feel by lowering seat height when stopped; and maintaining a constant; optimum suspension sag at speed by adjusting preload while continuously sensing weight inputs.
190mm (7.48 inches) travel on Showa® BFF™ (Balance Free Forks) fronts and a BFRC™ (Balanced Free Rear Cushion-lite) coil-over rear shock with electronic preload control and semi-active damping. The rear suspension incorporates a linkage system connecting the shock; swingarm; and frame which provides a progressive feel through the stroke.
